April 14, 1920 – February 29, 2012
Moldoff worked in comic books from the infancy of the industry, his first work appearing at the age of 18, doing Hawkman for M. C. Gaines. He had a long career, and is now linked heavily to Batman, a chgaracter he drew as a "ghost" for Bob Kane for 14 years, completely without credit or public acknowledgement. Moldoff was co-creator of such characters as Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, the second Clayface, Bat-Mite, the original Bat-Girl, Batwoman, and Ace the Bat-Hound.
